This hour-long documentary takes a look at the life and career of Irish guitar legend Rory Gallagher, featuring never before seen archive footage and interviews with his closest friends and family.

With a passionate fanbase around the world and renowned as one of the best blues guitar players of all time, Rory Gallagher was born in Ballyshannon, Co Donegal and brought up in Co Cork. He could name Bob Dylan and Muddy Waters as admirers, and The Rolling Stones even tried to hire him. He sold 30 million records and became a charismatic icon of Irish music, inspiring musicians such as The Edge and Slash.

Away from the stage, Rory was an intensely private man, with his brother Dónal his closest companion and manager. Undoubtedly the man who knew him best, Dónal was by his elder sibling’s side through most of his career; from the guitarist’s showband days, to his time with blues trio Taste, and success as a solo artist. Now nearly 30 years since Rory’s tragic passing, Dónal has striven tirelessly to keep his brother's legacy alive.

This special film will follow Dónal on a musical journey of discovery, as he has delved into his formidable archive to unearth unseen footage of Rory, in order to better understand what made this shy guitar hero so great. It also features guest interviews with musical legends including Johnny Marr, Brian May and Bob Geldof. (00:57:56)
